Toxic - Raquel Valldeperas **4 TRAGIC** stars



"Mama what does toxic mean?"
"That's the stuff you and me are made up of, she says
We're toxic, but only the best things are."

Ok, where do I start? Toxic is about TRAGEDY,
ADDICTION, ABUSE, HEARTACHE, and LOVE.

Logan or "Lo" for short, comes from the worst home-life imaginable, her mother is junkie/alcoholic, who beats her on a daily basis. She has never met her real father, and has no other family. At age 15, she goes to a party with her friend, where she meets soon-to-be boyfriend/d*ckhead Danny who takes advantage of her and eventually gets her hooked on drugs. Fast forward 3 years later, and still with a$$hole Danny, Lo goes on a job interview for a bartender, and her new boss, Nathan (who I love) hires her on the spot and becomes her savior. THANK GOD for Nathan! Poor Lo, my heart ached for her 90% of the book, but this does end with a HEA, yes it does!!!!There's so much more I could say, but I don't want to spoil it and this book is fairly short. If you enjoy dark reads, then this book is for you.

His kiss is...It floods my senses and erases all rationale. It takes over and becomes the only thing that matters. Forget oxygen. Fuck breathing. Maybe mom was right. His kiss is TOXIC, but only the best things are.



I betcha that I could read your mind

And tell you everything you're going through

Baby, I cry to find a thousand reasons why

You're alone and acting so cold


Tell me how long you've been this way

Maybe I can open up your heart

See, I've been waiting all my life for someone just like you

And I know you've been waiting too

For someone to love you


All you need is someone who cares

(For someone to love you)

Someone who will always be there

All you need is to say is that you want me to be with you

Girl, I know you waited so long

For someone to love you


Baby, I wish I could be there

For every time you ever shed a tear

Baby, I hate to see a pretty girl like you

Goin' through the things that you do, yeah


Girl, I think you've gone for far too long

Without a good man to make you smile

Now how can I appeal to you and make you understand

That I'm here, what are you waiting for

Someone to love you


All you need is someone who cares

(For someone to love you)

Someone who will always be there

All you need is to say is that you want me to be with you

Girl, I know you waited so long

For someone to love you


Maybe you've been waiting for a man from all your fairy tales

Or maybe just a man from all your dreams

Try and think reality, enjoy the possibilities

'Cause girl, you now you've waited for so long

For someone to love you, you, you, you, you, yeah yeah yeah

(Someone to love you)

You waited, oh, so long


All you need is someone who cares

(All you need, all you need, baby)

Someone who will always be there

(In the middle of the night, in the middle of the night)

All you need is someone who cares

(I ain't tryna play no game with you, no no)

Someone who will always be there
